“Gutted” Manu Tuilagi forced to pull out of England squad

Manu Tuilagi has suffered a fresh injury setback that has forced him to withdraw from the England training squad for Tests against USA and Canada next month.

He suffered a hamstring injury during Sale’s Premiership semi-final defeat by Exeter on Saturday.

After being assessed by club medics, he has not joined up with England before Sunday’s ‘A’ fixture with Scotland in Leicester, and July’s Tests with the USA and Canada at Twickenham.

Northampton’s Fraser Dingwall has been called up in his place.

England A face Scotland A at Mattioli Woods Welford Road, Leicester (Sunday 27 June, 2pm KO).

Eddie Jones’ side will then play two Test matches at Twickenham Stadium – against USA on Sunday 4 July (2pm KO) and Saturday 10 July (3pm KO).
